Lucknow: An eight-year old boy died after he was allegedly hit by a car in the convoy of an Uttar Pradesh Minister, Om Prakash Rajbhar, along the Colonelganj-Paraspur route in Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda district, on Saturday.
The boy was playing along the footpath late in the evening, when the minister’s convoy drove over him. The minister’s convoy, reportedly, didn’t stop after this incident.
